The French curtain-raiser takes place on Saturday and we are backing the Ligue 1 champions to get among the goals against the Coupe de France winners

The French football season gets underway on Saturday afternoon in the Chinese city of Shenzhen where Paris Saint-Germain and Rennes meet in the Trophee des Champions.

PSG, who won Ligue 1 with ease last season, will be looking for revenge against the side who denied them a domestic double by beating them on penalties in the final of the French cup back in April.

Latest odds

PSG comfortably won both league encounters last season and another success in 90 minutes is offered at 3/10 (1.30) by 888Sport. Rennes can be backed at 7/1 (8.00) with the draw offered at 23/5 (5.60).

Team news

Neymar has not featured for PSG this summer amid speculation about his future. The Brazilian is almost 100 per cent fit following an ankle injury which kept him out of the Copa America, but it remains to be seen whether he features.

Rennes, for their part, have no injury concerns ahead of the game. 

Preview

PSG have won 11 of their last 13 matches in all competitions against Rennes and it would be a major shock should they fail to record another success.

This match-up also tends to produce plenty of goals, with nine of the last 11 meetings seeing over 3.5 goals pay out comfortably, while the Trophee des Champions also tends to be an entertaining affair.

Thomas Tuchel's men have won each of the last six editions of the trophy, recording some convincing victories including last year's 4-0 success over Monaco and a 4-1 win over Lyon in 2016. 

Tips and predictions

Over 3.5 goals in the game could appeal at evens (2.00), while backing PSG to score over 2.5 goals at 19/20 (1.95) is a solid option.

The side from the French capital have scored at least three goals in six of their last eight games with Rennes, and look a good bet to do so once more.
